Albany Business Review Names New Editor-in-Chief
Melissa Mangini has been named Editor-in-Chief of the Albany Business Review. Mangini’s promotion from managing editor was announced by Cindy Applebaum, the Business Review’s publisher and market president.
As managing editor, Mangini has been responsible for the daily operations of the Business Review’s newsroom the past three years. During her time as managing editor, the Business Review consistently won awards from the New York Press Association for reporting, design, breaking news and feature writing.
A graduate of Syracuse University, Mangini joined the Business Review seven years ago and has held several editing positions in the newsroom. She has won three prestigious international Society of News Design awards and several awards from the New York Press Association for her work as design editor.
She was a driving force in leading the Business Review’s transition to a digital daily news operation while overseeing the paper’s weekly edition.
Mangini grew up in Latham and graduated from Shaker High School.
Her promotion takes effect Dec. 14 with the retirement of Mike Hendricks.
The Business Review, part of American City Business Journals, is conducting a search for a successor to Mangini as managing editor.
